A taste of the Plains
Another great day on the Plains.
Thoughts of coal and gas mining were displaced by great food and entertainment as exuberant crowds of locals and visitors joined to take advantage of a great day of fun food and entertainment at Caroona, in the heart of the Liverpool Plains. Opera and country singers, fashion parades, poetry readings were just part of the fun, as thousands joined in .
On a serious note, guest speakers Assoc. Professor Julian Cribb outlined the coming critical world food shortages, Matt Wright from Beyond Zero Emissions discussed an alternative non coal, non gas electric future based on proven solar and wind technologies. Other speakers included Deborah Tabart CEO of the Australian Koala Foundation, Adam Blakester from Paradigm Play Armidale, Professor Paul Martin from UNE Aglaw centre, Tim Wright a holistic farmer from Uralla and living legend, Jack Mundey. They all agreed that there is no need to sacrifice prime productive farmland to fuel outmoded power generation.
A feast for mind and body. Relive it here!
